Fleeces, Fleeces, Fleeces!

Well, the sheep were sheared last week and I now have 19 more fleeces to store.

I’m very pleased with the way the fleeces have come out this year, even the Jacob who normally felts her fleece managed not to.

Much as I would like to think that I have the time to spin all these fleeces, I know that’s not a realistic thought, so I’m putting most of them up to sell on the website. There will be 9 Jacob fleeces, four Hebridean, two white Shetland and two black/brown Shetland available. The price will include the postage costs to the UK.

Connie – before shearing.

    When will you be listing the fleeces, I’d be interested in a white shetland if you still have them.

      Rhian – they will be along soon. Gill has been very busy but I do know that she has taken photographs and we have drafted the listing. We are getting ready for an Open Studio weekend (beginning at 2pm today!) but will try to get the fleeces up asap. I’ll ask Gill to contact you separately if we find ourselves lagging.

      Thanks for the interest

    Thanks for your response Beth, I didn’t want to miss out. Good luck with the Open Studio weekend. I need to quickly start thinking about the Tour de Fleece which starts tomorrow and decide what I’ll be spinning. Rhian.

      Rhian – the fleeces are now on the web site. Hopefully you’ll find one you like.
